My practise focuses on representing how emotions can differ for people that are neurodivergent in the form of sculpture.

Final Project


For my final project I made sculptures that use juxtaposing ideas through textures, form, material and colour to acknowledge the drastic emotional range people with neurological disorders can face.


I have used plaster to create these sculptures as I find that the delicacy of the material best represents how fragile emotion can be.


My sculptures have been made into simple – but slightly imperfect – shapes. Each of these are made into two parts to demonstrate that there can be two sides of emotion.


I made the surface of each sculpture white and smooth to contrast with the chaotic, colourful centre. I have done this to visually show the extreme effects that differences in emotion can have.
